The Keddie Murders

The Keddie Murders

By Unresolved Productions

In April of 1981, a violent crime would tear apart a quiet town in northern California.

Keddie is a small town in the Sierra Nevada mountains, located roughly halfway between Redding and Reno. Originally established as a stop along the railroad, the area was in the middle of a total transition when the Sharp family moved there in the latter half of 1980.

On the morning of April 11th, 1981, 14-year-old Sheila Sharp was returning from a neighbor's house following a sleepover. That was when she discovered the gruesome crime scene that had been left behind... and the vile mystery that would haunt her (and the rest of Keddie) for the next four decades...
